2009 Duality of Light
LYNETTE WALLWORTH: DUALITY OF LIGHT
Lynette Wallworth is an internationally renowned Australian artist, whose reputation has developed from an ambitious practice of the most contemporary kind, spanning video installation, photography and short film.
Wallworth specialises in the creation of 'immersive' installation environments that offer a tactile gateway to the viewing experience.
Her works have been exhibited at Vienna's New Crowned Hope Festival, the Auckland Triennial, the British Film Institute Gallery at London's Southbank, and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in melbourne. She has had residencies in Iran, Italy and the United States. In 2008 Lynette presented solo shows in Aix en Provence and the Lincoln Centre in New York. In January her work was apart of the Sundance Film Festival.
The 2009 Bigpond Adelaide Film Festival has commissioned Lynette Wallworth to develop a new work, Duality of Light, which will premiere at the Samstag Museum of Art during the Festival.
The exhibition comprises five major works never previously exhibited together -- Hold 1&2, Invisible By Night, Damavand Mountain, Beautiful Sunset and Duality of Light -- and some of which have not been seen before in this country.
Duality of Light completes a trilogy begun by Wallworth in 2004, and continues her exploration of new ways of experiencing the moving image.
